This will give those of you interested in auditioning for this play a chance to read parts, get to know the play and to familiarise yourselves with the characters.

It is some 10 years after the end of the Second World War.  At the Hotel Beauregard in Bournemouth live a number of individuals whose varied circumstances have brought them to this measured, predictable existence presided over by the resourceful Miss Cooper.

Their secrets, triumphs and disappointments provide a distraction from the daily routines of meals in the Dining Room and conversations in the Lounge throughout two separate but closely linked plays, which take place some months apart.

In ‘Table by the Window’, the arrival of a former wife and in ‘Table Number Seven’ revelations concerning a Court case make waves for the permanent residents and guests, as well as Miss Cooper herself, in this otherwise sleepy coastal haven.

• Monday 24th to Friday 29th June 2019 - Evening Performances at 7.30pm; and
• Saturday 30th June - Matinee Performance at 4.30pm.

"To his skill as a craftsman, Mr. Rattigan has added understanding and forgiveness. The finest thing he's written." - The New York Times
